Countdowns

Its funny how, when trying to conceive, you begin to measure your life in two week increments. Two weeks until this doctor’s appointment, two weeks until this medication, two weeks until you get a negative or a positive. Although we’ve taken this month off from attempted baby-making, we’re still measuring time this way. For example, its been two weeks since our last blog posting and last night as we were sitting down to our homemade spaghetti dinner, J turns to me and says, “I miss the blog.” I said “How can you miss it? It is us! And there’s nothing going on anyway.” She said that she knew that, but she still missed it and reading what I had to say about our lives. So we laughed and although nothing exciting is going on in our neck of the woods, the truth is I miss it too, and all that goes with it. However hectic and stressful it can be, I do miss the countdowns to doctor’s visits and ovulation and even the 2WW (just a little bit on that one). It seems to give us something to look forward to, to plan for, and as you all know we are huge planners! We have taken this forced break in stride and it has really helped us re-focus and get back into a positive mindset.

And despite having no solid baby-making related countdowns at this point in time, we do have a lot going on this month that we are looking forward to. We have about a week until we go back to the fertility doctor for him to check on J’s cysts and hopefully they will be gone so we can proceed with the next IUI toward the end of the month. We have our niece’s 2nd birthday party to go to and we are excited to see J’s sister which we have been wanting to do for some time now! Not to mention I get to see my BFF (J’s cousin) which always puts me in a good mood. My aunt’s birthday is later this month and we are supposed to be going out to dinner to celebrate that as well. We don’t get to see her as often as we’d like so that should be a nice treat! School is wrapping up this month and we’ve both got projects and finals to finish up and we are looking forward to the Summer break VERY much. We’re also going to be starting our cake decorating classes after school is finished which we are really excited about (thanks Mom!).

Oh, and one more thing to look forward to of course…this month I finally get to marry the love of my life. 🙂

I’m super excited about this new chapter of our lives together. Even after 4 years it seems like just yesterday was when it all began. Everyone says that marriage changes a relationship, and I can only hope that we continue to grow closer and more in love as time goes on. We have everything finalized with our officiant and our trip is all planned out to Washington DC. I hope we haven’t missed the blooming of the cherry blossoms as I have heard they are really beautiful to see. A few people have told us that maybe God is waiting to give us a baby until after we are married and honestly, I’m okay with that logic. Believe it or not, we are such by-the-book people that I’m okay if God is being old-fashioned here. I like the idea of being traditional inasmuch as we can be, being two women. So many people think that being a lesbian means you throw out all the rulebooks and generic traditions, but not us. So if God wants to wait until after “I Do” to bless us with our little one, I’ll let Him have His way. 😉

So despite not being in the middle of a two-week wait right now, it feels good to just pop in and say hello and to let you know what’s going on with us lately. Hopefully we get some good news at the next doctor’s appointment and we can begin the next cycle of go-wait-go all over again soon. 🙂

Until next time…

    I know exactly what you mean!! Two week segments…and congrats on the wedding! We sort of felt the same way about someone having a bigger ‘plan’ for us and tha we’d have better karma if we got married. It hasn’t worked yet, but we did only just get married!! Have fun in DC!!
